The Beaconsfield: Drinks on Queen West
Last family day when families were at home watching movies and cuddling up by the fire, my friend Heather and I were cuddling next to a bottle of wine at The Beaconsfield.
The Beaconsfield is located on Queen West, slightly east of Dufferin. Naturally being on the 'trendy' strip of Queen West this dark bar holds its own in its relaxing venue.
Despite family day The Beaconsfield was still buzzing with patrons sipping on drinks and nibbling on delicious food. The decor is dark, relaxed and illuminated only by classic chandeliers and gold accents.
Once the historical Molsons Bank, The Beaconsfield is a hot spot that changes shape throughout the evening. It slowly shifts from people eating in a relaxing venue to a late night dance party with a live DJ pumping up the crowd.
For you sophisticated drinkers, this is a bar that will quench your thirst. With a great selection of draught beer, aged scotches and tasty spirits there is something for any type of drinker. The Beaconsfield is also extremely well known for its selection of tequila, just for you party animals out there.
Heather and I decided to skip the tequila and purchase a bottle of white wine. I mean it was family day, we can't get too drunk
Heather and Cole's Bottle
Yes we are on a budget so we got the Vino Da Tavola, which was an affordable $40 and it hit the spot nicely!
This was my first time at The Beaconsfield but Heather had some food recommendations.
Heather's Two Cents
1. The homemade Mac & Cheese. A Southern style dish with a top layer crust of chipotle corn flakes. Sounds like my new favourite pick.
2. Spicy Mint and Coconut Crusted Salmon. This sounds like an orgasm in the mouth.
3. You can't forget dessert, so get the Orange Ginger Creme Brulee.
So if you find yourself on Queen West one night you have to check out The Beaconsfield for some Mac & Cheese and tequila.
